Summary "Eight years after the end of Sri Lanka's armed conflict, Tamil speaking women in the island's north and east are still seeking justice and truth for wartime violations. Bold promises by the government to the United Nations Human Rights Council in 2015 -- including a truth commission, a special court and offices to investigate missing persons and provide reparations -- have failed to materialise even as the urgent economic and psychosocial needs of all conflict-affected groups remain unmet. Anger and a sense of betrayal have generated a new wave of women-led protests and threaten to become sources of renewed grievance that damage already slim hopes of reconciliation among communities, and between the state and its Tamil citizens. If Sri Lanka is to address the past in a way that reconciles its communities and builds lasting peace, the government must prioritise the needs and rights of conflict-affected women -- beginning by promptly establishing the offices on missing persons and reparations"--Publisher's web site
